Tsubaki Head Spa Review


I've been so obsessed with my hair for a couple of years. I use to dye it for 5 years straight and it has take its toll on my hair. So from that I've given my hair a break and have not coloured it for one year except to dye it a very dark brown which I think is much safer than dying it a light copper colour. Even though I've given slowed down on the hair dye my hair is still fragile and grows really slow now :(

So I've invested in Moroccan Oil (will do a review on that) and lots of other hair care products. If you've read my previous post on my SaSa haul I did purchase the who ESSENTIAL damage care product range but I think I'll save it for when I dye my hair a lighter colour for summer. So before my SaSa haul I bought the Shiseido TSUBAKI Head Spa range, however it came in the mail later. 

Both brands are good for damaged hair but I think the ESSENTIAL hair range better suits coloured hair whereas the TSUBAKI Head Spa is for scalp care. 

Left to Right: Shampoo, Extra cleansing (shampoo?), Massage Spa Mask, Conditioner

Here's what I researched about TSUBAKI:
Tsubaki means camellia in Japanese. The range contains tsubaki oil to which repairs and nourishes damaged hair. The Head Spa range was released in March. There are also 2 others, red packaging and white. The red is for normal hair whereas the white is for extra damaged coloured hair. 

I'm hoping the range I bought will help my hair grow faster *fingers crossed*

Here's what SaSa says about the *Extra Cleansing (Shampoo)*
Shiseido Tsubaki Head spa contains a high purity of tsubaki (camilia) oil & many other natural ingredients, is specially designed for advanced scalp care. Using just once or twice a week will help remove all the chemical residues from hair products, at the same time deeply nourish each hair strands like a quality hair spa at home. This is your key to healthy & beautiful hair growth. Your hair will restore its healthy shine and smoothness. 

how to use it

  1. Take Appropriate amount and massage to damped hair for ~ 3 minutes.
  2. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.
  3. Recommended to use 1-2 times per week.

It cleanse while provides moisture to your hair, softening the scalp.

how to use it
  • Recommend to use together with Tsubaki Shampoo and Conditioner for better nourishment effect. Use the mask once a week.
  • Take appropriate amount and spread evenly through every hair strands while giving massage to your hair scalp.
  • Leave in for 5~10 minutes.
  • Rinse off thoroughly

Shampoo and Conditioner is self explanatory 


Scent: Smells very nice and floral

My hair didn't fall out as much in the shower. Also you don't need a lot of the product, just a tablespoon full of product should do. I applied the shampoo to my scalp and washed my head really well. Then I gave it a quick rinse and applied some of the Extra cleansing product. At first sight it looked like oil but when I applied it to my scalp it lathered really well. I left the product on for a while, you could continue washing your body, shave legs etc. while it works on your scalp and hair.

Finally I applied the conditioner to the ends of my hair then worked it into my scalp. Gave it a good rinse after afterwards.

My hair was really soft and manageable. I think I will do a recapped review and see how my hair goes after 2 weeks of continuos use. I use to use Pantene Volume collection but I think it makes my hair fall out =(



  1. I am using this range too, its really good. My hair is smooth and tame.

  2. Hey! how much was the Shiseido Tsubaki Head spa mask from I know they don't carry it anymore, but I'm jw how much it was when you bought it from there? Thanks girl <3
